“CN” means “combined nomenclature.” A CN code is a customs/tariff designation required in box 13 of export certificates for the EU. CN codes are published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Disclaimer: While CCOF can assist in determining CN codes, the accuracy of CN codes used on export certificates is ultimately the responsibility of the client.
